What we’re doing
Cottage Grove will maintain the visual character of Sunset Terrace by preserving the 66-year-old existing house and front yard. The new cottages will be similar in size to the 1,335 sq. ft. average of nearby housing units, and we anticipate that moderate- and middle-income families will be able to afford all units. Our site design echoes the two neighboring townhouse courts (Grove Estates and Ashworth Townes) while adding a 0.24 acre landscaped common green, including a rain garden that will improve local drainage.
We have filed a zoning variance request (BOA-0076-2020) with Raleigh’s Board of Adjustment, requesting a minor variance on site width. The case will be heard in 2021; for updates, see their website. You can read our justification statements here:
